What is it and why the ARC?

The Architectural Review Committee, or commonly known as ARC and referred to in the covenant as ARB, is a group of residents who serve as volunteers.  Their task is to help preserve the community original identity, the very reason most homeowners invested in Pine Bluff of Minneola.

For every outdoor home improvement you do, an ARC Request must be submitted via our ARC Portal.  The ARC team will help homeowners get their project going in ways that are in alignment with covenants, bylaws, city and even state regulations and codes.  They will guide you through processes that add value to both your investment and the community, while making sure every one is safe.

Examples of how the ARC protects your investment, your property and life


There will be some fun fence designs that we will love to have, yet will our neighbors agree?  As we recognized the beauty in diversity, our community was originally designed with a specific characteristics we must preserve.


Imagine that by accident you forget to seek guidance on your new roof project and later find out that it has to be replaced to comply covenant!  Ouch!  Something rather simple, suddenly turned into a nightmare!


The ARC team also oversees safety!  We love our hills, yet some of us would like to enjoy a leveled backyard.  Why not?  Failing to build within code could hurt you and loved ones, and cause more damage than good.
